Windows cluster
    SQL Server cluster instance ( 2 node)

Windows IIS
    Use SQL for Sessionstate ( use SQL Server in the cluster above)
    then use IIS clsuter as a service

    Enable IIS feature on both nodes.
3.Add feature windows cluster on node 1.
4.create a cluster on node 1
5.enable cluster feature on node 2
6.Join 2nd node to cluster.
